    When you put a blank Disk in the unit it isn't formatted, it is indeed... blank... Right click on the drive (D:/ for example) and select Format. your system will tell you wehat to do after it recognizes the type of Disk you inserted.

you can try a laser lense disc cleaner , something similiar to

I think there are better branded ones.

If that does not work then the laser lense for the dvd is not working / broken so will be easier to replace the dvd drive.

What kind of DVDs do I need

You should try a small package of both. the reason is not because of what burner you have but what you are going to play it back with. I have found that most lesser expensive dvd players handle +R better but most more expensive ones handle -R better.

It's an age old delema, for some +R for others -R but the it is the playback device that will dictate which medium to use not the burner.

Bought DVD-Rs, 'Verbatim', 16x for Dell Dimension 4600, driver Samsung CDRW/DVD SM-352F Computer does not recognise the dvd Wrong purchase?

This drive is a CD writer only. Although it will read DVD's it will not write to them.

You will need to replace the drive with a DVD-RW drive.

Hope this helps.
